These three impeccably edited volumes cover the wills, inventories, distributions of estates, and court records of the men and women who settled in that fecund district of Connecticut embracing Hartford, Wethersfield, and Windsor. Officially established in 1666. Residents of those towns had their wills proved in Hartford, and this work contains not only accurate transcriptions of those wills, but transcriptions of all related documents, including administration records, inventories of estates, records of estate distributions, and associated court records.
